Prior to the official UK launch scheduled for later this year, Roland DG will offer visitors to Sign & Digital UK 2015 an exclusive preview of its new heat transfer finishing solution - the Texart CS-64 calender press.
The new Texart CS-64 is the perfect finishing partner for Roland’s recently launched dye sublimation printer, the Texart RT-640. The CS-64 will transfer sublimation print produced by the RT-640 at high speed onto a variety of polyester-based materials used for flags, banners, soft signage displays, fabric for fashion, sports apparel and many other promotional applications. Built to meet high production demands and designed for ease of use, the CS-64 will appeal to both seasoned professionals and companies new to the dye sublimation print process.
Brett Newman, Sales Director Roland DG (UK) Ltd: “Working seamlessly with our RT-640 dye sublimation printer and Texart inks, the new CS-64 delivers a finishing solution that’s fast, affordable and easy to use. At just £12,999 plus VAT, the addition of the CS-64 to the Texart range allows us to offer the industry a complete textile ‘print to finish’ package – software, printer and calender - for just £25,998 plus VAT. This represents a very accessible investment opportunity for any company looking to profit from the growth in demand for printed textile products. “
Simple to use, the control panel of the CS-64 can be mastered in seconds. Loading and unloading materials is equally straight forward. The CS-64 uses a precision roller feed system and digitally regulated, infra-red heat to transfer dye sublimation print onto fabrics. With production speeds of 50 m²/hr and the option of an in-feed table, the CS-64 has the versatility to handle large roll volumes and small pre-cut fabric jobs with equal finesse.
Safety is also an important consideration and there are several built-in features, including sensor controlled covers, which protect the operator from heat and harm. Another key component of the CS-64 is the heat resistant Nomex® feed belt that’s Kevlar-reinforced to deliver consistently high transfer quality and a long service life. To prevent costly ‘image ghosting’ errors on the fabric, the CS-64 has an ingenious tension bar system that separates the textile from the transfer paper after sublimation and rewinds them onto their own take-up rollers.
Newman concludes: “We look forward to welcoming visitors to our dedicated soft signage and textile printing stand at Sign & Digital UK. It will be a fantastic opportunity to discover how to profit from our textile print to finish solutions, learn more about the processes and technologies involved and get inspired by our superb display of printed textile applications.”
Visitors to Sign and Digital UK 2015 can see the new Texart range on Roland’s dedicated soft signage and textile printing stand – F34. The Sign and Digital UK exhibition runs between the 24th and 26th March 2015 at the NEC, Birmingham.
